Bourjois Bronzing Primer- £9.99

For some reason cream face product scare me, when it comes to bronzer, highlighter and blush I am a powder girl through and through- I think it's because I once tried a cream highlight that didn't blend well at all. Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel seems to have come back into the spotlight (I say back, wasn't it big a few years ago? Or did I dream that?) and I've been toying with the idea of giving it a go, but at £32 it's not exactly cheap and did I really want to pay that much for something I might never use?

I clocked this Bourjois Bronzing Primer when strolling through Superdrug; at first glance it looked pretty similar to Soleil Tan de Chanel and at a third of the cost I was more than willing to give it a go!

I kinda wish I'd got a picture before I'd used it, woops!
I've been applying this over my foundation using a Real Techniques contouring brush and pop it in the hollows of my cheeks, swirl it up to my temples and bring it onto my forehead- basically where I'd apply bronzer usually- and this gives such a lovely sunkissed glow. As it's a cream, it blends really well and gives such a natural finish. It looks a little orange toned in the pot so I'm fairly sure that if you try to build it up too much it'll be orange toned on the skin, but when used sparingly it's subtle but lovely. It's not the best for contouring, but for an all over glow it gets the job done. 

I'm not fully converted to cream products, but this has definitely made me want to try a few more. Probably starting with Chanel...

What are your must have cream blushes/bronzers/highlighters? 


  1. I've never seen a bronzing primer before so that's quite interesting! x

    1. i'd never seen one either! i'm not too sure where the 'primer' part comes into it, but it's still a great little product if you can get your hands on it!
